    Yes, Boat guys haven't seen a boat in years they say.

    question, guys in civilian clothes? Contractors?

    Could you elaborate? I don't want to make assumptions or violate opsec, but I guess they would augment SEAL platoons? Just interesting to see a boat guy in a landlocked country, that's all.

    I can't speak for Afghanistan, but in Iraq they were trolling the rivers by boat. We used them twice to infiltrate by water. They then helped us operate our Strykers as they didn't seem to have much else to do. As far as I know, they aren't patrolling around on foot. At the end of the day, they are vehicle crews that help shooters infil/exfil by water.

    GHAZNI PROVINCE, Afghanistan - Ghazni Provincial Reconstruction Team commander, U.S. Navy Cmdr. John Doolittle reenlisted U.S. Navy Special Warfare Boat Operator First Class Pat Roberts from Navy Special Warfare Unit-2 on top of Tampe Sardeh mountain in Ghazni municipality May 25
    I wonder if there is any relation to the more famous Doolittle?

    That's what I read here last year because of Afghanistan. I don't think that's true anymore because of the pirate issue.

    No more interesting than a SEAL being in a landlocked country.

    Everytime I see you guys post stuff that argue the authenticity or make it seem like you know it all, I wonder "How do these civy's and pog's think they know EVERYTHING about SOF when they're never beens?". It's funny so many of you are quick to say "Thats not american" "thats not navy seal, thats army sf" "that's not a CCT that's a Ranger working with CAG due to his kit".... news flash, they don't run by SOP's you read daily. They don't do anything conventional, or have patterns. Get off your high horses, stop acting like you know everything. These guys switch up everything daily.

    So if they keep everyone guessing due to opsec/persec/etc.. how do you figure you would know everything about them? I think people who argue in here should be banned, it's annoying to see never-beens acting like they know

    "He has an AK, Could he be afghan?" - regular grunts in SOME units get AK47's/AK74's
    "He has an LBT Rig, he's a navy seal" - troops can use/buy w/e gear they want unless their COC/NCO Support Channel begs to differ, in which they're douche bags
    "Those are X Y Z Tires, so they're not American" - These guys buy off the economy alot of the time, so why would they have A B C tires?

    Seriously stop acting like you guys know everything when 90% of you never served a day in the army. As SOF let alone a POG

    You sound like my doctor when I told him my opinion on medicine when I had no idea what I was talking about. As a meds student now, I fully understand how you and he feel.

    Well the nature of a forum is to have a discussion, so if they have a difference of opinion you can discuss that. No need to ban people just because they don't believe what you say.
